St Kitts and Nevis will go on the polls on June 5 to elect a new government after Prime Minister Dr Timothy Harris made an official announcement. Nomination day is Wednesday, May 27.
Harris announced online the election. The polls are predicted to be quite a challenge for Team Unity government to retain the power as opposition St Kitts, and Nevis Labour Party has emerged as saviours in COVID-19 pandemic.
According to surveys conducted in St Kitts and Nevis 70 percent of the youth are in favour of SKNLP, whereas 30 percent of youth is sticking to Team Unity. This is significant data as youth votes are considered the biggest undecided votes sector. Mostly, undecided votes change the scenario of the election result.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions on public gatherings, the election campaigns are going to rely heavily on social media and radio.
